Overview of the solaris10 Zone
The virtual-to-virtual (V2V) process
for migrating an Oracle Solaris 10 native zone to a solaris10 branded zone supports the same archive formats as P2V. This process
uses the zoneadm install subcommand.
The solaris10 brand install subcommand
uses the following options, which correspond to the same options in the attach subcommand.
Use of the install subcommand is recommended.
Specifies a path to an archive to unpack into the zone. Full flash archive
and pax, cpio, gzip compressed cpio, bzip compressed cpio,
and level 0 ufsdump are supported.
Specifies a path to a tree of files as the source for the installation.
Use the –d option with the dash parameter to direct
that the existing directory layout be used in the zonepath.
Thus, if the administrator manually sets up the zonepath directory
before the installation, the –d — option
can be used to indicate that the directory already exists.
